In the last video my friend Vincent had showed us Beijing as its best especially in the oldest hutongs where all the most unexpected surprises are hidden.
哈啰小伙伴！还记得wellcee上一支北京lifestyle视频的吗😎我们的鼓楼dancing Queen Vincent带我们在北京鼓楼的大小胡同中走街串巷，体验了一把胡同中的夜生活！
But if you know Beijing a little, you know this city has more than one characters.
Living in Beijing in the past 5 years, the neighbourhood where I usually hang out, are quite different from the beautiful hutongs. Here is the pulse of Beijing, the economic centre, the fashion lab, young generations get together here to define themselves, to search reorganization. Vibration, original, alive, out runner, elites are the labels of this location which the name is : Sanlitun.
According to Vincent, Sanlitun is too pretentious, too above the clouds, but what he doesn’t know is here he can find amazing food, quality cocktails also the view of the city lights.
Isn’t the light of the night, the shining CBD buildings and the big LED says I love BJon the intercontinental hotel wall that make us feel like home at some point?
或者说，华灯初上时， CBD林立的高楼用各式灯光编织的都市图景，远处北京洲际酒店的LED大屏幕上闪烁的“I Love BJ”，是否总会在某刻触动到你的心弦？带来一种有点唐突却十分温暖的家的感觉？
Back to the business, if you come to Beijing, there are plenty of options to do but this spot you CAN NOT miss! – Nali Patio.
Spanish Patio means little yard, in reality, its indeed like a yard surrounded by coffee shops, restaurants, local designer shops and very nice bars.

81 Sanlitun Rd, Chaoyang District
For starting the night, I choose El Barrio. A Mexican restaurant merged with modern touch, very unique decoration inside of the restaurant, and the food is just amazing. You can start the food gently with friends or family, when it gets to 10 or 11 pm the place will be filled up by Latin tune!
People will start dancing in the restaurant, that’s what I like about this place is the concept about dancing and food, they successfully make the two together!

Okay now you had a great dinner and your body is warming up, now let’s go to the next place—La social. It’s one of the first bars who started bringing the latin heat into this area.
在El Barrio热了热身后，我们来到了下个地点——La social酒吧，它算是最早把拉美热潮带到这片地区的酒吧之一。
D308, Nali Patio, 81Sanlitun Rd
It’s like the pandora box, once you open the door, you will fall in love with it! The place itself is not big but the people there are just enjoying themselves, their joy and their love for salsa will make you feel like you are in Columbia on a sunny afternoon in summer!
By the way, if you pay attention to all the decorations, its all designed by my friend Alvaro himself!
Wait, you are not a fan of Latino music? That’s fine! Because remember what I said? This place is like a pandora box! Now let’s try something different!
Here we come to AURORA. In the day time it’s a restaurant but at night it turns into a bar where you will enjoy if you are a techno music lover!
Tongli Building (South Entrance) Sanlitun Bar Street
TEL：+86 156 5078 9525
It has two parts the red room and the white room, the white room is more like house sometimes African tunes but the red room often they have very good techno DJs.
电音DJ的表演主要是在Aurora的“红屋”(red room)区，而酒吧内另一个区域“白屋”（white room）时常会有很棒的非洲乐曲。
Now since Vincent is getting tipsy, I think we should finish the night by bringing him to a place where you can be yourself, be crazy, be creative, be wild and dare to live—RED DOG.
从Aurora出来，Vincent已经有点醉了，于是最后一个酒吧我们定在了Red Dog, 一个能(让Vincent)大胆放开，嗨燃蹦迪，释放精力和创造力的地方😌
B1-538, Bldg 5, Sanlitun Soho, Chaoyang District
朝阳区 工体北路8号院 三里屯SOHO
The location is not exactly in Nali patio but in Sanlitun Soho, you just need to cross the street then you are there!
My eyes got catched instantly by the Drag queen! The self-confidence that the crowd occupies here, the energy you feel in the place is fascinating!
And of course, once again our lover Vincent got smashed! That means my mission is accomplished! (Applause!!👏)
